We hired St Michaels for a family 50th birthday with 21 of us staying. House is in a good location with plenty of parking and nearby supermarkets, and is a manageable walk into town for those that way inclined. There is a little noise from the nearby main roads but it’s not really noticeable after about 10 minutes. First impressions on entering the house were excellent, all very clean and tidy with loads of space, although sleeping arrangements took a bit of planning. Bedrooms, and Sofabeds allocated, we started setting in. It was a bit difficult finding stuff in the kitchen as there are so many drawers etc but there was easily enough of everything needed for the full tweny one of us. However, there is only really enough space for about 16-18 people to all sit down at the same time to eat. Gym, hot tub, pool table, projector TV, and table tennis table were all well used throughout our stay. We decided against the sauna as weather was too hot, and it was not suitable for the younger members of the group in any case. The housekeeper Anne Marie (sorry if spelling incorrect) was very helpful, as was David when we needed to interrupt his holiday to ask a question about the boiler - so thanks to them and Tatiana for helping make our stay a weekend of memories to treasure. We had a fabulous weekend!!!
We booked this for my daughter's friend's Hen do after seeing it had won an award on Trip Advisor and seemed the perfect setting, I can honestly say it far exceeded my expectations in size, facilities, comfort and service. We are from Kent so didn't leave the house but it does have an amazing location near the beach with Tesco, M&S Food hall, Aldi& Home Bargains all just a few minutes drive away. Its also opposite a Beefeater restaurant if you don't want to cook. There were 18 of us and I can honestly say there was so much room and we were not on top of each other at all and can easily see how it can accommodate more. We ordered a Tesco shop and self catered for the weekend, there were nice baking trays, utensils, saucepans, with plenty cups, utensils and plates which were more than sufficient for what was needed. Usually when you are away from home you have to "make do" but this was not the case. I felt like we had stepped into someone's home with everything you need. There is so much about this property that took my breath away and feel it certainly lives up to its reviews.The hosts were on hand and answered any queries straight away. I would love to return here one day! Thank you for an amazing weekend in your beautiful home xx
We were given an amazing welcome and were spoilt.
The house is beautiful and finished to such a high standard. Springy carpets, comfy furniture and everything u need in the kitchen.
The hot tub was incredible. We spent alot of time relaxing in there.
We even got to use the gym.
There was a group of us six ladies and we had a brilliant and relaxing time in this very spacious luxury home with super comfy beds.
The house is very clean and the snooker table was a great added bonus. We will be back with our families for sure.
Thank you xxx
A group of 6 of us shared this absolutely beautiful home for two nights. Tatiana and Dave are very proud of St Michaels which is pristine and beautifully presented. It was my sisters birthday and they greeted us with a bottle, flowers and chocolates for her which was such a nice touch. We made use of the amazing hot tub and the gym too. We would love to come back and stay again.
We were a group of 18 ladies of varying ages. This 4 bedroom house is very spacious and decorated superbly. I stayed in the Master Bedroom and the huge bed and new air conditioning unit were fabulous. Only bedroom with Air Con at the moment though and others said that rooms sleeping 5-6 people were airless and really need air con installed. I would highly recommend this property for large groups of family and friends.
We have just spent a wonderful weekend at St Michaels holiday home, celebrating my wife's 70th birthday. This is a great place to entertain a large number of guests, we had eleven family members and relations staying. We were met by David and Tatiana McCarthy, the owners, armed with flowers, wine and cakes, a great start to our party.The house is very large with plenty of room to spread out. Nice large kitchen and dining area, leading out to a conservatory. The lounge is very large with seating for 11 or 12 people. There are 5 bedrooms, most can sleep 4 people. This is ok if you don't mind other members of your party sharing your bedroom with you, not my ideal situation, OK for hen parties etc.
There is plenty to occupy your time there, table tennis table, pool table, cinema room, fitness room, sauna and a hot tub. Great in the hot tub even though the weather was freezing cold.
I have to say this was an ideal place to host a small party for my wife's 70th.
Thank you once again to David & Tatiana
I have just returned home to Northampton after being part of a sophisticated Hen party at St. Michaels, what a perfect place for such an event. There were 18 of us ranging from 34 to early 70’s. Not once did we feel cramped as the house is so huge, the house was beautifully presented and maintained and the hosts were helpful and left some tasty cupcakes for us to enjoy!
Some ventured for a walk but with great weather on the Saturday we made good use of the garden and the jacuzzi! We all had intentions of using the well equipped gym but sadly we just ran out of time....maybe next time!
Will definitely keep this venue in mind and if Sharing double beds are not and issue this is perfect for large gatherings!
Thank you very much for letting out your beautiful house where so many happy memories were made for the hen and we all know each other before the wedding in 4 weeks!!
